Pitbull will be the first to receive the “Latin AMA Dick Clark Achievement Award” during the ceremony. The honor recognizes a Latin artist that inspires all of humanity with his dedication to music and because he uses his fame and influence to help those in need. This artist does not hide in a recording studio, but gives brightness and hope to those that have no other alternative. Dick Clark was one of the great pioneers of the music industry in the United States of America and he declared, “I have accomplished my childhood dream, to be in show business. Everybody should be so lucky to have their dreams come true. I’ve been truly blessed.” The Dick Clark Achievement Award is the distinction given to an artist who has permitted others to make their dream a reality.

Initially inspired to pursue his music dream by one of his high school teachers, Pitbull also understands the impact that education can make in one’s life. To spread that message and encourage quality education for children from all walks of life, he serves as an ambassador for SLAM!, Sports Leadership and Management charter schools. Launched in the Little Havana section of Miami where he spent some of his youth, the SLAM! model has now expanded to Las Vegas and West Palm Beach, Florida.

The Latin AMAs honors artists in the genres of Pop/Rock, Regional Mexican, Urban, and Tropical, as well as categories for Favorite Crossover Artist, Favorite Collaboration, New Artist of the Year, Artist of the Year and Album of the Year, among others. The “Latin AMAs” nominees are based on key fan interactions with music, including (but not limited to) sales, airplay, streaming and social activity tracked by Billboard through its data partners Nielsen Music and Next Big Sound.

The Latin AMAs 2017 will air live from the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California starting at 9pm/8c on Telemundo. Prior to the main event, the stars will walk the red carpet and the network will air a special starting at 8pm/7c. Who are you most excited to seeing at the Latin AMAs?
